Yaddo Presents: An Evening with Jonathan Santlofer

Yaddo and Northshire Bookstore are pleased to present an evening with Yaddo artist Jonathan Santlofer to celebrate publication of his new memoir, The Widower’s Notebook, a tender and resonant account that probes the emotional depths of loss, grief and healing.

Writer and artist Jonathan Santlofer’s new book, The Widower’s Notebook, collects the thoughts and drawings that followed the unexpected death of his wife into a polished memoir, described by Publisher’s Weekly as “a quiet stunner.” Santlofer has also published five novels, including The Death Artist and Anatomy of Fear. He has edited and contributed to several anthologies, including It Occurs to Me That I Am America: New Stories and Art, which was deemed a “Notable Book” by The New York Times. His artwork has been exhibited widely in the United States, Europe and Asia.

Please join us for this very special evening with an artist whose work sheds light, warmth and humor on life’s most difficult passage.
